Teaching International Students in Vocational Education

New pedagogical approaches

Author(s): Ly Thi Tran

Publisher: ACER Press 2013

Foreword by Gavin Moodie

Teaching International Students in Vocational Education: New pedagogical approaches is designed to support vocational education teachers in both addressing the distinctive learning characteristics of international students and preparing domestic students for global skills mobility in the ‘Asian Century’.

Well-grounded in theories about teaching and learning in vocational and international education, and supported by empirical data drawn from interviews with teachers and program managers, the book expounds several evidence-based, highly effective, pedagogical approaches within the context of competency-based training. These include:

These approaches focus on developing the learner’s ability to consider the broader issues in an intercultural context, to capitalise on prior experience and to adapt vocational skills to workplace settings transnationally. The underpinning theory is brought to life with real-world exemplars, ‘Implications for Practice’, quotes and insights from teachers, as well as reflective questions throughout the book.

Teaching International Students in Vocational Education offers effective approaches to teaching and learning that will benefit not only international students, but also domestic students who gain from the enriched learning environment in which diverse cultural knowledge, skills and attributes are shared.
